So here’s an interesting thing. I’ve mentioned before (and you’ve probably seen reported elsewhere) that several scripts for Doctor Who season 8 leaked onto the internet.
Well apparently in those scripts there is a reference to the title sequence being done by BBC Wales Graphics based on original idea by Billy Hanshaw.
So who is Billy Hanshaw and what is his idea? Well Hanshaw is apparently a media professional who is also a Doctor Who fan and just last year he posted this idea for a Doctor Who credits sequence on YouTube.
Of course it’s not clear to what extent this idea is being used or which elements are being incorporated. Still it is significantly different from what we’ve seen before. What do you think? Personally I like a lot of the elements but it feels a little heavy handed.
